so gunna start letting lo have food with us and have found out they can have 1g of salt a day so sent oh to asda for some stuff to make her a sandwich with and everything is packed with salt
so was figuring 1 slice of bread for lunch and quater a dairylea triangle thats more than half her daily reccomended amount of salt then of course there is a smigin of salt in her snacks that she has the goodies things and her cereal so what am i supposed ot do the rest of the dal lol she cant have anything else with salt was gunna do her some pasts or something but that has salt in aswell im in a blunder over what to give her that doesnt have much salt without having to boil veg for every meal of the day or give her fruit for every meal :-/
You can swap things like dairylea for full fat soft cheese like Philadelphia.
Ozzieshunni pointed out in another thread that pre packaged cooked meat has more salt than fresh would so perhaps cook and slice your own sandwich meat.
They also don't eat a whole adult portion of the food so the amount of salt isn't as much as it might say on the packet.
I'd be interested in what other posters have to say.
We also were quite shocked by how much salt is in things (e.g 0.5g in one pitta bread) but for now the amount LO is eating is so little it's not too much of a concern. I do know that the BLW cookbook says that it's more about balance - so if you're offering something high salt then also make sure to offer lots of fruit and veg too.
I thought dairy lea was particularly high salt too, but dunno if they've had a revamp cos when I compared it to Philly and own brand it was about the same content.
